About CMA Music Fest

Our 2016 CMA Music Fest hotel and ticket packages (including Gold Circle) are now available.

What is the CMA Music Festival (formerly known as Fan Fair)?

For one week in June, the country music industry says “Thank You!” to the fans at the Nashville event of the year. You can meet and greet many of your favorite artists, pick up autographs, take close-up photographs and enjoy the many live performances as well as all the other sights and sounds around Nashville including Opry Mills Shopping Mall, Wildhorse Saloon and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

The main Fan Fair events are focused in three venues in downtown Nashville. Shuttle buses run between the major sites:

Evening concerts are held at the Nissan Stadium, the NFL Titans’ football stadium. Show times are 8:00 PM – 11 PM Thursday through Sunday. All seating is reserved, and the level of your ticket determines your seating section:

GOLD CIRCLE: Folding chairs on the field facing the stage in the North end zone – Sections A-E and AA-FF
FLOOR: Folding chairs on the field facing the dual stage in the North end zone – Sections G-Q
